About Garrett Jackson
Garrett Jackson is a shamanic practitioner and teacher. He is passionate about teaching the shamanic path of direct revelation, helping people to make their own firsthand connections with the spiritual realm so that they may bring its guidance and healing to themselves and others.
Following an initiatory experience in 2014 at the age of 17, Garrett began learning how to work with the helping spirits in order to bring their loving messages to others. He began giving readings to people across the globe, and in 2016, started teaching spiritual classes. In this same year, he also began his formal study of cross-cultural shamanism and shamanic healing.
A graduate of Sandra Ingerman's Two-Year Teacher Training in Shamanic Journeying, Healing, and Medicine for the Earth (2018-2020), Garrett teaches workshops on shamanism and Ingerman's work on transforming personal and environmental pollution. He also facilitates message circles and offers remote divination and healing work.
Garrett has a wealth of experience conducting one-on-one and group workshops, and has presented in interviews and webinars. He brings a blend of kindness, enthusiasm, scholarship, respect, and humor into his classes and speaking engagements. In his work, he provides a safe and welcoming space for everyone, including fellow LGBTQIA+ people, and those from racial and ethnic minority groups.
He also has experience assisting other teachers in their workshops. Garrett was an assistant to Sandra Ingerman on the Facebook group for her nine-week online course, The Dark Night of the Soul as a Portal to the Shaman's Light. He and Sandra recorded a video dialogue entitled "Shamanism and the Younger Generations." Additionally, he served as faculty assistant to Radleigh Valentine during his September 2019 workshop at Kripalu.
Personally and professionally, Garrett emphasizes the importance of science and integrative healthcare. He is certified in Mental Health First Aid through Mental Health First Aid USA, and graduated cum laude from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh with a BA in psychology.
He is listed on shamanicteachers.com, a global alliance of shamanic and Medicine for the Earth teachers who are dedicated to teaching shamanic skills around the world.
Garrett lives in Washington, D.C. with his partner. In his spare time, he enjoys exercising, watching comedic or historical television, studying psychology, anthropology, and shamanism, and trying to appear as if he can cook.
